Shopping and Baseball and Car Rides, Oh My!

Hey everyone! It was nice to have one last hurrah before school starts – a trip to Detroit! This post will be a recap of the trip, and Wednesday’s post will be the eats šŸ˜€


Mom and I headed out right after my cross country meet where I got 4th place! My time was 21:08. It was so. hot. Which figures since we ran at 12:30!

After what seemed likeĀ forever,Ā we finally made it to our hotel. We were so tired, we just went straight to bed!

The next morning we woke up ready to shop.

We went to Great Lakes Crossing, Michigan’s largest outlet mall! I’m telling you, it has theĀ largestĀ Forever 21 you will ever go to. It’s the size of a department store. Oddly, I couldn’t find a single thing there. Crazy. Normally I’m head over heels in that store! I really didn’t get too many clothes. I don’t need any! I did get…

an anchor shirt! I’ve been lookingĀ so long for one and I finally found one! It’s from Windsor Store. I’m thinking first day of school outfit! Some more purchases:


Victoria’s Secret actually had good deals. Running shorts for $8, tshirt and capris each $10, sports bra for $5!

white jeans

White jeans at American Eagle for $12!


I didn’t even run that day. Walking around the mall was workout enough!

After shopping we headed to the heart of Detroit – Comerica Park!

The Tigers were ahead 5-2 when we decided to leave in the bottom of the seventh. Good thing we left, because literally the minute we were on the road it started POURING! Pouring like couldn’t see the car in front of you and going 45 on the freeway. Luckily we made it to our hotel safe in about a half hour!

On the way home we stopped at the Mystery SpotĀ to say hi to my cousins – they own it! We also stopped to find a Geocache.

I finished two books during this road trip – “The Michigan Murders” and “Almost Anorexic”. They were bothĀ amazingĀ books. Highly recommended reads.

Now I’ll just be enjoying my last day of summer – I start high school on Tuesday! Wish me luck šŸ˜€



I can just feel my mood improvingĀ soĀ much. It’s absolutely beautiful outside! 60 degrees this weekend- marvelous! I don’t know if that applies to you down south, but it feels like a heat wave here.


You know spring is here when… I can go Geocaching!

You know spring is here when…Ā I have outdoor softball practices. The gym was getting pretty hard to practice in!

You know spring is here when…Ā we start the yard work. Raking leaves is a lot of work!

You know spring is here when… I can cat hunt! Probably my favorite part of summer. I’ll just walk around town and find cats and pet them. (minou means cat in French… if you were wondering what the name meant!)
